Students´short term stay from our partner school Berufskoleg Rheinbach, Germany

From April 16 to May 6, 2007, our School organized a short term stay of ten students from our partner School in Rheinbach. The German students were learning to make moulds for glass melting according to their designs. They tested various types of mould constructions including the lost wax technique. The students from Germany took part also in a lesson of portrait painting after a model and learned the technique of glass plate printing - vitrography. During their stay the students enjoyed two trips to Praha and visited a pleasure ground Babylon in Liberec. They visited also the glassworks Ajeto, the castle Lemberk and saw the nature-protected formation Zlatý vrch. The students took part in excursions in glassworks Preciosa, Jílek and Severosklo in Kamenický Šenov.
